Disability Accommodations

Students or guests requesting disability accommodations can contact WKU Student Accessibility Resource Center (SARC) at (270) 745-5004 or sarc.connect@wku.edu.  Requests  will be handled on a case-by-case basis. SARC will make every effort to accommodate all requests.

Graduation is very well-attended, and we encourage anyone with mobility or health issues to arrive early. If you use a wheelchair, cart, or other specialized equipment, please bring it with you. Wheelchairs and other mobility assistive devices will be the responsibility of the attendee. A sign language interpreter will be on the right side of the stage (facing the stage).


A limited number of parking spaces will be reserved in the parking lot adjacent to Diddle Arena for individuals who possess a disability parking permit. The lot can be accessed from the Avenue of Champions.  Reservations are not needed.

Accessible Seating

Diddle Arena's accessible seating is located on the second level of the arena. Elevators are available at each entrance. One additional guest may accompany the attendee with a disability to this area. To assure accessible seating for all who need to be accommodated, we ask that other guests be seated near the accessible seating areas. All seating at the ceremony is open.  No reservations needed to have accessible seating.  We recommend that you arrive early.
